Mother’s Day Caddis on Lower Madison
Ok, we have been keeping our eyes open the last week, waiting and hoping that the weather and river would all turn right and get the Caddis moving around along the lower Madison this week. Theys started to show up in good numbers yesterday!Expect this to get REALLY good this week so long as the flows don’t make any significant jumps coming out of Ennis Dam. Elk Hair Caddis (you pick the color…fish don’t care right now) and a Caddis Pupa behind one makes for a great rig if you see some fish rising. Standard nymphing with worms and pupa patterns will get it done when the rise is quiet OR swing a little soft hackle and think of Sylvester Nemes every time you get a tug this evening. Our Bozeman fly shop is well stocked right now with a Caddis, Caddis, Caddis so come in a pick up some on your way out to the river today and have some fun!
